Something Old, Something New

▼ Something Old, Something New (13th hour & arrival log)
Who: Anyone
Where: The entire city
When: The news two weeks
Summary: This is both a Newcomer log AND a General 13th hour log
Warnings: That depends who is there

▼ When it is darkest, men see the stars...(13th hour)
The night sky once again turned red as the 13th hour hit the city. By now it was almost too easy to accept it. The moon (or what was of it up there) shone, affecting the monster population in subtle ways.

By now, even the strange events which had happened almost seemed a little too common. The pulls from a new building, or the odd creatures that showed up and increased the population for that hour gave rise to new oppertunities; both good and bad.

To keep the population safe, the mayor had asked the city to stay inside that night and let the city police and visitors do their job, despite the dividing population on this issue. For the most part, there wouldn't be much resistance.

Each night, the sky was always filled with at least one or two signs of something new, and people were ushered inside buildings as much as possible.

Who knew. Maybe tonight you'd get lucky.

▼ Ode of the Newcomer
You're not in your homeworld anymore. That much is evident. So how do you feel? Happy? Sad? Troubled? A little of all three? No matter what, the memories of a butterfly man named Philemon are fading like a dream; you'll remember the details, but perhaps not everything he has said. What time you showed here seems to be as random as everything else; if you were lucky it was during the day, if not, well the 13th hour was rather dangerous. Fortunately, there was a high chance you'd be spotted quickly.

...hopefull anyway.

There is one word that stays with you, however.

Persona. to save the city, huh? First you'll need to find out more information. And who knows, maybe a familiar face or two...

▼ Extra Long OOC Blurb
[(Make sure you read it!) This is a dual log, both 13th hour, or newcomer posts (we're testing it out to see this works well or not.)

This will be up to you on what you want to do; start a new post where you can character's name and OPEN and write the days they'll be wandering during the 13th hour.

If you are a newcomer, write OPEN and what hour they arrived. It can be the 13th hour if you want too!

Join other people's post, do some exploration, post them fighting monsters and just have some fun leveling up / interacting! For this log, you can level up persona, but not in the same thread and the same day, IC-wise. Please do not abuse this. The conditions is that the fighting must happen on different days. The threads should be long enough that an attack is possible and shouldn't just be a few comments just for the sake of leveling up (Ie, we want effort in them, as much as you would with a normal log.).

If you submitted a building and it was accepted, feel free to start a post with them discovering it! The original owners who submitted will be the first to see them, due to a strange pull that made they feel like they NEEDED to go to that area. What they do with this information is up to them; they can contact others in their group, start exploring by themselves or allow the thread to be open for others to come in with's all up to you. That next morning, the government will be coming over to analyze them (that will be done offscreen, however).

FOR THE CREATURES 1) The creatures have to be in the Beastary for you to use them. You don't need to use creatures from your own home worlds either, as long as someone's put in a creature in there! Also, make sure your characters could logically take on the creatures you pick let's not have them take down a giant creature when they couldn't normally.]

[personal profile] nemophila 2013-03-04 11:11 pm (UTC)(link)
He'd already accepted what had been coming: what was essentially the end of the world, having to give up everyone and everything here to make it right-- to bring her back. He'd had to give up everyone he still had left, but-- perhaps things could be different this time? Things could be better. That was the only thought keeping him sane.

Until of course, Philemon appeared, to take it all away. Again.

And now Jun was getting sick of it. Sick of "Personas," sick of Philemon and Nyarlathotep's stupid little games, sick of trying to save everyone.

And he was angry.

He had no idea where he was, or what was going on or, what the hell was up with the atmosphere with the city right now. But when you take a mopey, bitter teenager right out of an end of the world scenario and throw him somewhere else, they tend not to react very well. Which is why, anyone happening upon the "newcomer," would find him currently antagonizing some hapless-- well, it wasn't a totally hapless citizen, seeing as they were lurking about during the 13th Hour dressed suspiciously in black, but Jun currently had the poor sap by the front of his jacket in an iron grip and a startling tranquil glare on his face.

"What's going on?"

...Needless to say, the poor, persona-less wannabe robber was too terrified to answer at the moment.
trollsdragons: (Neutral)

[personal profile] trollsdragons 2013-03-04 11:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Anger, fear - both wonderful emotions in Xellos' book. Unfortunately, there was far too much fear coming off of the robber for him to actually give Jun the information he wanted - at least, judging by what Xellos knew of the average human.

So perhaps it was time to intervene.

Xellos steps out of a dark area, casual as can be, and mustering his most innocent expression before speaking to Jun. "I suppose that is the question, now isn't it~?"
nemophila: (5)

[personal profile] nemophila 2013-03-05 02:09 am (UTC)(link)
His eyes darted to the side to look at Xellos through narrow eyes. The guy he was antagonizing...didn't look like he knew if he was being saved or just getting in more deep shit.

"I don't have the patience for word games right now."
trollsdragons: (Ahahaha~!)

[personal profile] trollsdragons 2013-03-05 10:35 am (UTC)(link)
Xellos chuckles quietly, and waves a dismissive hand. "Well, that much is obvious! I merely say so, as you're not the only one wondering that, and while I do understand your frustration, I believe that our friend here," he says, then gestures to the robber oh so non-chalantly. "Might be more willing to answer if you asked him a bit more nicely, hmm~?"
nemophila: (6)

[personal profile] nemophila 2013-03-06 08:24 am (UTC)(link)
He idlely looked at the robber once again, as if he had completely forgotten about or lost interest in him.

The guy looked about ready to piss his pants.

"Where are we?" Jun asked, in the same tone of voice as before-- really it was kind of hard to get more calm right now than 'tranquil fury.'

"Th-Th-Th-- This city! I-It's-- Hinoto-Ri! A-A-All kinds of p-people like you h-have been c-coming and going--!!"
trollsdragons: (What kind of expression am I making~?)

[personal profile] trollsdragons 2013-03-08 11:10 pm (UTC)(link)
A few steps puts Xellos behind Jun with folded arms. He looks toward the robber with interest - probably too much interest, really. "People like us? Just what is that supposed to mean, hmm? After all, you just met us - how can you know anything about us?"
nemophila: (Default)

[personal profile] nemophila 2013-03-09 03:37 am (UTC)(link)
"V-Visitors from a-a-another world! They're all over the place! I'd be an idiot not to know!"

At that, Jun quirked an eyebrow at that. Clearly they weren't the only ones being roped into all of this crap this time. Well wasn't that just dandy.

The singling out, oddly enough, didn't bother him much. "Then where are the others?" He asked, surprisingly actually sounding a little more calm than before. Er, sounding at least.

"A-All over the place! L-Like I just said!"
trollsdragons: (Oh! How peculiar.)

[personal profile] trollsdragons 2013-03-10 09:36 pm (UTC)(link)
"Another world, hmm...?" Xellos frowns a bit, then strokes his chin. "I suppose that explains a few things!" After saying that, he folds his arms, though the frown remains. "It is rather rude to just drag us here, though. I was quite busy, after all!"

There's a pause before he speaks again.

"There is one unresolved bit, though, Mr. Robber - there's some lingering thought from before I realized I was here. Just what is 'persona'?"
nemophila: (5)

[personal profile] nemophila 2013-03-14 07:20 am (UTC)(link)
"A manifestation of your inner self-- a reflection of you are. It's supposed to protect you."

Jun says without missing a beat. Oh yeah, he was pretty familiar with that concept.

"I know that much." As far as he was concerned, they'd exhausted the information that the robber could give him. So with a bit of a forceful shove, he releases his grasp on the man, who proceeded to scramble back to wherever he'd come from.

"You were brought here, like the rest of us."

Tsukasa watched from... well, they weren't the shadows - Tsukasa wasn't the sneaky sort. But from the side of a nearby building, at least. "I don't understand much of it either. ... I think he understands even less, though."
nemophila: (Default)

[personal profile] nemophila 2013-03-05 02:12 am (UTC)(link)
Jun took a glance at Tsukasa as he appeared, before quickly turning his attention back to the helpless man in his grasp.

"..." He looked geared up to say something again, but in the end pushed the man out of his grasp and shoved him forward, until the guy was scrambling to run away.

"'Understanding' comes later. I think it's a bit rude to shove someone into a situation like this against their will, isn't it?"
aurathread: (deleted)

[personal profile] aurathread 2013-03-05 04:28 am (UTC)(link)
"Well, yeah. But we've got to deal with what we have."

Not that he's that happy about it, either.
nemophila: (4)

[personal profile] nemophila 2013-03-05 04:44 am (UTC)(link)

There! That was simple enough.

"I refuse. I've seen the kinds of games they play, and I refuse to take part in it any more."
aurathread: (cold nights)

[personal profile] aurathread 2013-03-05 05:04 am (UTC)(link)
"I'm not sure you've got a lot of choice, really."

He understands, really he does. But this isn't really looking too good.
nemophila: (5)

[personal profile] nemophila 2013-03-05 06:34 am (UTC)(link)
"And who are you to say what choice I do or don't have in the matter?"

Because he reeeaaaally ain't liking your tone, random person, given the way he's currently full-on glaring.
aurathread: (like the sun will rise)

[personal profile] aurathread 2013-03-05 04:40 pm (UTC)(link)
"Someone who's stuck in the same situation as you."

After a pause, he continues.

"But no one, really." He doesn't seem to mind the glaring that much. It's not his father, so he's not scared of this guy.
nemophila: (6)

[personal profile] nemophila 2013-03-06 07:55 am (UTC)(link)

He does some sort of change; the glare's gone, and he lifts his chin a bit. Not enough that his other eye was visible, but enough to make a difference. An almost curious look comes to his face, as he touches his chin in though with his thumb and forefinger.

"How did you deal with your entire family life being a facade? How did you feel when you learned that all of your efforts were orchestrated by beings beyond your control and in the end all you had worked for had failed? What did you do when you were then requisitioned by one of those very forces once more immediately as you thought you could finally correct every mistake you'd made in your life?"

He never slept very well during the 13th hour, so of course he was out, walking the neighborhoods, on the lookout for anyone who was new.

It was then that Tatsuya spotted the familiar-looking Cuss High uniform from a distance, and the person was waaaaay to short to be Eikichi and he really doubted it was a random Cuss High student. It could only be one person. It had to be...

"...Jun?" Tatsuya was still far away, and he managed to run toward Jun and...whoever he was talking to, he couldn't see very well from this angle. "Jun!" He was louder this time, and running faster, which probably scared the shit out of the already frightened mugger.
nemophila: (Surprise: And then there were aliens)

[personal profile] nemophila 2013-03-05 02:15 am (UTC)(link)
Tatsuya managed to accomplish two things with that: completely blindside Jun's brewing rage, replacing it with a look of incredulous shock, and also causing the poor criminal to nearly piss his pants.

The surprise was apparently enough for Jun's grip to loosen, because as soon as he got the chance, the man came free and ran off, screaming for his life. Jun hardly noticed.

"Ta...Tatsuya?" No way. It can't be...
lighter_flick: (7)

[personal profile] lighter_flick 2013-03-05 02:40 am (UTC)(link)
It is, and he was about to say something, probably inadvertently gay romantic or touching or even saying that he missed Jun really bad, but...

He noticed the guy running off and screaming.

And then Tatsuya gave Jun a "Whaaaat just happened???" look.
nemophila: (Default)

[personal profile] nemophila 2013-03-05 03:28 am (UTC)(link)

And this is the part where Jun decided that the ground was pretty interesting, and looking at it was a great way of hiding his shame.

"I lost my temper." And we all know how well that usually turned out. "I-I'm sorry...."
lighter_flick: (4)

[personal profile] lighter_flick 2013-03-05 03:37 am (UTC)(link)
That snapped him out of his confusion, and Tatsuya came closer to Jun, trying to fix...this...

"Forget it, it's fine." That guy looked shady anyway, forget him!!

"Are you alright?"
Edited 2013-03-05 03:39 (UTC)
nemophila: (5)

[personal profile] nemophila 2013-03-05 03:51 am (UTC)(link)

Oh, yep. Heee's angry again! But the random shady guy hardly registers a second thought from him right now. There were much, much bigger fish to fry.

"What are we doing here? None of this is supposed to be happening...! Everything was supposed to get-- fixed-- and now we're stuck in another one of their asinine engagements?!"

He couldn't even tell if he was getting angry or upset at this point.
lighter_flick: (5)

[personal profile] lighter_flick 2013-03-05 04:14 am (UTC)(link)
...What should he say to that? That he was at least glad he could see Jun one last time? How...selfish would that be? Maybe... he wasn't lying, about Tatsuya being so selfish that couldn't...

Now it was Tatsuya's to stare at the really interesting ground again.

"I...I don't know. Everything's still really vague." Should...he...bring up that things were possibly fixed anyway? Maybe when Jun calmed down a bit.
nemophila: (Disappear: Freak out)

[personal profile] nemophila 2013-03-05 04:42 am (UTC)(link)
He wasn't angry at Tatsuya-- really, he wasn't. Hell, after the Masked Circle thing, he couldn't really bring himself to be angry at Tatsuya. But with an answer like that... it was nearly impossible to maintain his composure.

"But why?!" Well he didn't mean to yell, but-- "How are they expecting us to just-- do this again...?!"
